Description
I was rather struck and dismayed by the sight of Americans celebrating death. Though Osama Bin Laden was a horrible excuse for a human being... I do not believe death... anyone's death, is cause for celebration. I much prefer celebrating life, or in this case... peace... so here is my first post... I hope you enjoy... or at least

Lyrics
May 2nd; By Steve Kindel

If I held then thousand things; What would I do then?
Would I do for you what sages do? Or help the broken mend?
Would my children fall asleep at night knowing I am near?
We have seen the worlds tyrants fall and there’s nothing left to fear


(Chorus)
Celebration in the night; The eagle’s taken flight
The raptor broke his tether; So then why don’t I fell better?


And if I knew ten thousand things; Then what would I do now?
Would I choose to build a bomb or would I push the plow?
Or would I seal the raptors fate? Bask in the Sun’s warm glow?
If I knew ten thousand things; What would you care to know?
What would you care to know?


(Chorus)
Tell me why don’t I fell better?


Will it take us to the brink to relieve our thirst for Devil’s drink
Give the Sun, the wind, the rain the power to relieve the strain
Now if you bow your knees to pray; or take heed to what the sages say
Pray for peace below the gates; Then I’d have cause to celebrate.
We’d all have cause to celebrate.

reminds me of Bill Miller
well done! Welcome! Looking forward to more! You should post the lyrics.
Excellent songwriting, I missed the celebrating but if it was soldiers, I imagine they may have cause, I can't see myself doing that but I've never fought in a war and lost comrades, So that I can't judge. Maybe they were celebrating more than a man's death, a lot more.

Gorgeous...
Heartfelt performance, thought-provoking lyrics (actually not thought-provoking, I simply found myself nodding in sad agreement), and I just love the simple but compelling chord changes you slip in there as we go 'round the bend. Sweet singing and playing...
ttfn,
Drakonis

Philosophical lyrics make me think a bit while enjoying your banjo and vocal delivery. I really like your emotional arc in your playing/singing.

downloading
I think if you go back to edit the song, you change the restricted rights section to the other one and that should make the tune downloadable.

Violence
and hatred are too big a part of the world stage. I am ashamed that there were publicized celebrations of the man's death. Many are relieved but I am not. You have a lovely voice. Thanks.
